Some lucky folks have managed to get their hands on the Nexus 5 log files which reveals its more or less confirmed specs. The screen comes with a 5″ Full HD display that pushes about 440 ppi while its processing power is handled by a high-end Snapdragon 800 that’s mated with 2GB of RAM. The device which they had comes with 16GB of storage but it is likely Google would offer variation of storage sizes since expandable microSD storage would be lacking.
In the imaging department, the Nexus 5 is seen to be having a 8MP shooter which is a notch below the 13MP camera that’s found on the LG G2. With photography said to be its biggest highlight, there’s no confirmation if it will carry the Optical Image Stabilisation that’s being used on the G2. The device will also support 4G LTE as well as the standard WiFi 802.11a/b/g/n/ac, NFC and Bluetooth 4.0.
Another interesting discovery is that the Nexus 5 is listed by an Ukrainian telco as using nano-SIM. If this is not a mistake, the Nexus 5 would be the 3rd non-Apple device to use nano sim after the ASUS Padfone Infinity and Moto X. In terms of availability, the Nexus 5 might be officially announced on 31st October as hinted by case maker SPIGEN.
Battery life of a smart phone is an everyday niggle. While manufacturers have resolved battery life issues by squeezing in bigger battery capacities, it can be annoyingly long to charge especially when you’re in a hurry. In Japan, Softbank has introduced the Fujitsu Arrows A which interestingly offers a whole day of usage with just 10 minutes of charging. If you let it charge fully, the Arrows A can last 3 days on its 2,600mAh battery, which is pretty standard capacity in today’s flagship smart phones.
Among the specs, the Japan specific device comes with a top notch 2.2GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor, 2GB of RAM, 64GB of on board storage, a 13.1MP camera, 5″ Full HD TFT LCD display and even comes with 4G LTE connectivity. In addition, the Arrows A also comes with a smart fingerprint scanner that’s located right behind the device. Out of the box, it runs on Android 4.2 Jelly Bean.
It is unclear how does its 10-minute rapid charging work and it could be part of Qualcomm’s Quick Charge 2.0 technology or it simply uses a higher Amp charger.
